How the program helps

  • Equipment and supply needs
  • Safe transportation options 


  • Children and youth who participate in organized recreation, arts and sport activities perform better scholastically, socially and grow into healthier adjusted adults. 
  • Recreational activities develop children’s self esteem, responsibility, sharing, teamwork and sense of belonging.
